Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Morning Dew

Yesterday morning overnight rain and morning cold temps left the garden heavy with dew.

Panicum

The seedheads glow like diamonds in the sun


Callistemon

Castor bean

Parahebe perfoliata

Pennisetum 'Redhead'


Nolina 'La Siberica'

Unopened Brugmansia

The combination of dew and spiderwebs means the garden is all ready for Halloween.

  2. Fabulous Alison. I was so pleased to see the Panicum. I've just acquired one and was totally bowled over with its appearance after rain. I love the red highlights in the leaves too, which I don't seem to have yet.

  7. Stunning photos, Alison! Those panicum are absolutely superb. I think this post may have tipped my internal debate on whether to add Panicum to my garden towards the affirmative.

  13. Excellent and beautiful photos!

    Is this the time that we migrate to our place in California/Mexico/anyplace warm and have the caretaker watch over the garden for the winter?

  14. I know that's going on out there, but it takes your photographic skills to bring it to my attention.

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
